    I am just an experienced newbie on computers.

    People depend on me to help with computer problems ie blind leading the blind, but I am the one-eyed giant.

    I am looking for free software ie easy to use that will do the job of Acronis.

    I see in my newsletter Easeus software mentioned.

    Opinions of which one to use to do the job similar to Acronis ie to IMAGE an entire computer and RESTORE in case of problems ???????????

    I read the blurbs about Easeus Todo BU vs Disk Copy and can't decide.
    They BOTH sound like they will do the same job.
    I've seen posts where people use Todo BU to do an IMAGE RESTORE.
    Seems to me that DISK COPY is what one would want.

    This comparison page seems to indicate that DISK COPY is what I am looking for >>>>>>>>>>>

    Thanks for any advice in advance.

    I would look at Disk Copy as a cloning program; the source drive is replicated on a shiny new drive. ToDo is more versatile, it can still do the sector by sector thing but also make an image that can be stored as a file on another drive for possible reconstitution back to the same drive it came from or to a new drive.

    I would use DiskCopy for possible data recovery, forensics, or to move from a smaller drive to a larger one. I would use ToDo to make periodic images for possible restoration if anything goes awry.

    As both are free but only one works as a Windows backup program, it's a no brainer.
    Install ToDo and backup everything!

    cheers, Paul
